I'm new to this forum but see there are some very knowledgeable people out there ! So hopefully someone can help. I want to have the functionality of a MCE PC, but don't want a really expensive PC sitting under a TV in the living room, and have to have another PC elsewhere when someone actually wants to do some 'normal' PC work. Ideally, I'd like to put the MCE PC elsewhere, with an extender in the living room, but of course, there are no extenders in the UK yet (as far as I know?) Also, it would then make it difficult to use the MCE PC as a PVR as it is some distance from the incoming SKY cable in the living room (can't get freeview I'm afraid) and I think the signal levels would drop quite a bit. (Can you record all - even subscription channels - to an MCE PC?) Anyway, I saw that LG have released the LRM-519 in the US which is a DVD/HDD recorder, with the ability to be networked and stream media in 2 directions from an XP or MCE PC. They have a tied up with Microsoft for this. This would seem to be an ideal solution for me but LG say no release date for the UK as yet. Does anyone know of this or any other similar product that is available in the UK?
